From rush hour traffic and working in cubicles to double-masking and triple-vaxxing, our lives are worlds away from where we were in February 2020. The reality is, many of our lives have been changed forever.

Here in Allegheny County, some renters are on shaky ground, COVID cases are dropping after a record-breaking spike and schools are grappling with how to educate students. Recent COVID surges have led to shortages at critical institutions.

As we near two full years in a pandemic environment, PublicSource wants to hear from you. Please share your thoughts. Note that we won’t publish anything from you without contacting you for permission, so please share your email!

Know more than you did before? Support this work with a MATCHED gift!

Through Dec. 31, the Wyncote Foundation, Loud Hound Foundation and our generous local match pool supporters will match your new monthly donation 12 times or double your one-time gift, all up to $1,000. Now that's good news!

Readers tell us they can't find the information they get from our reporting anywhere else, and we're proud to provide this important service for our community. We work hard to produce accurate, timely, impactful journalism without paywalls that keeps our region informed and moving forward.

However, only about .1% of the people who read our stories contribute to our work financially. Our newsroom depends on the generosity of readers like yourself to make our high-quality local journalism possible, and the costs of the resources it takes to produce it have been rising, so each member means a lot to us.

Your MATCHED donation to our nonprofit newsroom helps ensure everyone in Allegheny County can stay up-to-date about decisions and events that affect them. Please make your gift of support now.
